Brad Pitt's advice for OWS protesters

While promoting “Moneyball” in Japan, E! News reports that Brad Pitt had some words of wisdom regarding the Occupy Wall Street protests. His advice? Keep going, learn the issues and come up with a plan.

Americans are questioning a “system that has not served us very well,” Pitt explained to Tokyo reporters of the current movement. He described a system “defined for corporate lobbyists instead of the best needs for the people, and people are feeling screwed a little bit there."

The father of six also stressed that OWS protesters need to keep their momentum. "The most important thing," he said, is "not just getting swept up in the fervor of a fight. If you're feeling marginalized and frustrated, sometimes the release of a fight can pacify for the moment."

Brad Pitt: Jen Aniston wasn't dull, I was

Brad Pitt would like to clear a few things up.

In an interview with Parade magazine, Pitt reflects on what life was like in the '90s. He tells the mag that he spent a lot of time "trying to hide out" and escape the "full celebrity cacophony." His hide-out process, he said, involved sitting on the couch with a joint in his hand, and eventually he started to feel "pathetic."

Here's where his ex Jennifer Aniston comes in: Pitt tells Parade that "It became very clear to me...that I wasn’t living an interesting life myself...I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t."

Brad Pitt: I'm so happy to have Angelina

At 47, Brad Pitt can say he's a satisfied man. But if you go back about 15 years, the actor says he was far from content.

“I spent the ‘90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony. I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic," Pitt tells Parade magazine in this weekend's issue.

"It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself," he continues. "I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t."
